The proceeds raised go toward the funding of polychromatic LED light therapy systems used in physical therapy to increase blood circulation and reduce pain. Additionally, funds will provide specially trained service dogs specifically for use by Veterans living with PTS, TBI and physical injuries to enhance their daily adaptive living needs.
